09 Nov New Hyde League a “brilliant concept” by the Jason Roberts Foundation
All of the teams taking part in the league were introduced to the crowd at the Pavilion, these including QPR in the Community Trust, and the Crystal Palace and Michael Bruce academy.
The opening game saw QPR take on Palace, with the Premier League outfit fighting back on two occasions to salvage a 2-2 draw late on.
In the first Under-16 match of the league the Jason Roberts Foundation lost out in a seven-goal thriller to Sports Strive Elite on Sunday, while the Urban Education Football Academy 16-18 age group lost 3-0 to the Colin Kazim-Richards Academy.
Sunday’s game of the day saw the Michael Bruce Academy get the better of the Nigel James equivalent in a hard-fought encounter.
